Dr Valentina Iotchkova
EBI Sanger Postdoctoral Fellow
This person is a member of Sanger Institute Alumni.
Valentina Iotchkova studied Mathematics and Statistics (2004-2009), followed by a DPhil in Statistical Genetics (2009-2013) in Professor Jonathan Marchini's group at the University of Oxford on Bayesian method development for multivariate phenotype analysis for genome-wide association studies. She is currently an EBI-Sanger postdoctoral fellow (ESPOD) shared between Professor Nicole Soranzo's group at Sanger and Dr Ewan Birney's group at EBI, working on modelling the genetic-epigenetic regulatory pathways in hematopoietic cells. Her interests lie in statistical method development for analysis of high-dimentional datasets in quest for unravelling the genetic basis of phenotypic variation.
